Last Saturday night, hubby and I attended the Wilmington High School Class of ‘74 White Party held at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. My husband actually graduated in 1975, but it was a 1974 Scholarship Fundraiser attended by many of the graduates including those from the classes of 1974 and beyond.
Needless to say, we had a great time and because it was an all white party I was able to purchase a new dress, which most of you would have seen if you follow me on Instagram. Hubby and I had gone shopping a few weeks prior where I found this cute dress at Boscov’s .
The shoes are closet staples but the purse was also a recent purchase from Steinmart, a store that I hadn’t shopped before. However, it won’t be the last time I shop there, because I also purchased a white lace dress for another #whiteparty which we will be attending in August.
Hubby custom designed his white suit from the World of Alfa, which is an online designer of men’s clothing created by the actor Boris Kudjoe.
The World of Alfa offers high styles at low cost and I must admit that we looked GOOD!
Not only did we look good but everyone in attendance was also looking good and feeling fabulous especially out there on the dance floor where we jammed to “blasts from the past”. The songs were spun by DJ Touch Tone and hyped by Lady B of Old School 100.3.

We had a great time and had almost made it to the bewitching hour of 2:00 am which was the time the party was to end, but we left around 1:00 am, which was still a late night for us both.
There was a cash bar and finger foods, also a few vendors and photo booths but I found the “charging station” to be an added bonus so that I could keep my phone’s battery from dying and losing out on some great pics.
Driving home hubby and I talked and laughed about the good time we had and we are looking forward to next month’s event in Townsend, Delaware which is being sponsored by hubby’s fraternity, Omega Psi Phi.
So how was your weekend?
Last night hubby and I attended a birthday party for one of his fraternity brothers (Omega Psi Phi) in Wilmington. The party was held at a small club in town and it was almost like a mini Delaware State College reunion. A Kappa Alpha Psi party was also going on downstairs and I saw a few brothers that I knew from college. The catered food was excellent and the crowd was warm, however, we left earlier than midnight because I wanted to go to church in the morning.
The dress was purchased on clearance from Macy’s last August but I never wore it. My husband’s suit, shirt, shoes and suspenders are his normal work attire however, he chose to go without a tie for a more casual look.
Strapless Dress – Macy’s// Jessica Simpson Shoes – Marshalls// Pashima – Boscov’s// Purse – DSW// Jewelry – Icings
My hubby feels as though he looks old – not to me – for 55 he looks GOOD!
